Must be Santa




Growing up I didn't mind Santa  but the Easter bunny I was terrified of not sure why but I didn't like him. My dad growing up didn't like Santa every year around Christmas when my grandparents would take my dad out to shop he would freak out thinking Santa was out to get him cause at every store (when Santas were everywhere) my dad would say "Mom. Dad. We need to leave he followed us here! We have to go. Why does Santa follow us?" My dad told me this which I think is hilarious! And Kayden finally had his first Santa experience Saturday & he did amazingly well he almost started to cry but then he saw me & figured everything was ok I assume... also I'm sure the candy cane in his hand didn't hurt. 

I'm sure next year will not be as pleasant since he will be way more aware that he is sitting on a strange mans lap but I'm a proud mama with how well he did.

Christmas Wonderland


Ahh crisp cold air it was definitely feeling like winter last night so we decided to plan a little trip to Greg's old neighborhood since it was a Wednesday .. Wednesdays are kind of a special day for Kayden & I daddy doesn't go to the gym after work so he is home two hours earlier! (Yay! This is where we all clap)  
Any who Ever since Greg could remember his old back door neighbor in Pleasanton would decorate his house as the North Pole & ever since we've been together I always wanted to go so last night we finally did! 



Needless to say Kayden LOVED looking at all of the lights & anything that moved he was amazed at what was going on around him, can't blame him cause I was quite amazed myself. I didn't realize how much hard work Bob & Susan put into decorating their Christmas wonderland every year. Unfortunately Santa was not there that night he is very busy you know, but he is available every weekend so that is where he will be spending his weekend nights we may have to stop by to take a picture after he makes an appearance at our second families party this Saturday. We had a great time & this will definitely be a yearly tradition for our family. 


I hope you enjoy the photos we took, I do have one request! Bob & Susan's house is in a Christmas decorating contest & the prize is 100,000 dollars it will not be going to themselves though they get to donate  it to the Pleasanton schools how awesome is that!

Kayden 6 Month Stats


Can you believe you are 6 months little man! Thats half a year old & it flew by! Although you haven't been to the doctors yet for your 6 month check-up (tomorrow) Daddy weighed you & you are 17Lbs. now, I'm sure the doctor will comment on your weight tomorrow saying you are in a lower percentile but I say who cares as long as you are growing & healthy, mommy & daddy were also smaller babies so  you get it from us. 



You have started eating every hour or half hour & I'm pretty sure you have a fast metabolism like mommy. Today you will try fruit for the very first time not sure which fruit yet but I'm sure you will love it being it is sweet...you seem to love sugar, grandma hates this... mommies fault I guess. 



You love going in your jumpy sometimes you get a little to wild in it so I take you out, it still makes me nervous. You've been sleeping a lot lately but I know you are going through quite the growth spurt right now. And I finally figured out why you weren't sleep very well a night you wanted to be closer to mommy, go figure! 
You love going on walks & looking at all of the trees they fascinate you, so do feet... & not just your feet everyone's feet, I'm hoping this doesn't turn into some weird obsession later in life but I'd love you even if it did. You are on the brink of crawling which god knows mama & the house are not ready for this & maybe why you haven't done so yet. Your favorite thing to do at the moment is pick things up & bang them against other objects, I love watching you to this it cracks me up you have such determination on your little face. Speaking of faces you love doing facetime with daddy while he is at work just watching your face light up when his pops up on the screen is priceless & luckily daddy took a picture of this. 



In advance I'd like to say I'm sorry you feel off of the couch yesterday, thankfully right on your butt on top of blankets I turned around for one second and there you were on the ground I got this on camera so later in life I can tell you & you can hold it against me ; ) You were absolutely fine & even smiled at me till I got the camera to take a picture of the moment.

I love you to the moon & back little man & so does dada <3
